8. Gilbert's 17th Street Grill 1821 Cordova Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316 (Fort Lauderdale)

Tucked in the Harbor Shops at Fort Lauderdale, this family-owned burger joint has been serving quality comfort food for over 10 years. It’s home cooking at its finest: the key lime pie, made fresh daily from an old family recipe, comes with a gratuitous dollop of whipped cream; clocking in at 8oz, the “CAB” Burger (Certified Angus Beef) is sure to satiate any cravings. There’s a casual, diner-meets-cafeteria vibe to the place (think hanging lantern-like lamps; upholstered banquette seating, two top tables clustered throughout), making it both group- and kid-friendly.
